So, I've been wanting to do this for a couple years, but could never justify the $5500 CDN that tracks would've cost me.

Well, it would appear that no one else could justify it either, and a dealer passed a full, brand new set, of Soucy XT-90's over the the auction barn. I was lucky enough to grab them for $2000!!!

I did have to get hub spacers/adapters to go from the JD pattern to polaris pattern.

While I'm at it I've added a 2" spacer lift (not on yet in pic), and I'm glad I did. The tracks need space to clear the fenders.

I'm also adding a silencer muffler, finally getting my Warm 4500XT winch on it, and re-routing the gas tank breather so I don't end up with a gas tank full of water. i think the rear diff is in for the same treatment.

Only thing left that I'm considering is a clutch kit.

With it's new height, wide stance, and wheelbase I honestly don't know what kind of stupidity I'd need to get up to to get stuck!!!

HOLY COW! That is so C O O L ! ! !

Would love to see a video of it in action! Have you figured out a way to mount the new baby's car seat in it yet? :good2:
No, but we sure will be!! She's the whole reason we got the S4 (in 2013....).

Nice find, I would definitely pay $2000 for a set, am in the same boat hard to justify $5500. :bigthumb:. Keeping my eyes open for a deal like that for mine.

WOW that's about the cost of rims and tires. I'd think the only thing you'd have to worry about is high centering it with that wheelbase.

True. The 2" lift spacers, and the 5" of height that the tracks have added should help with that!!!

Not a lot of obstacles to high centre on around these parts though, mostly just mud, snow, and FLAT.

Good work man! Bad to the bone. I can't imagine how you must have felt when you bolted those on and dropped your tools and stood back.

ALL of the above statements are true!!!! Heck - when I see a walk behind trencher on tracks I get excited!!!

I'm pretty pumped. I'll get video ASAP.

Big thanks to my young neighbor Austin for doing the work for me as a side job......kid knows what he's doing!!!
